The guided view was very interesting and interactive, a fundamental stop for the knowledge of Siena, such as the Cathedral and Piazza del Campo. I hope that this site will have the opportunity to be known and visited more and more.
It's very nice museum with lots of interesting info. It's not well equipped for English unfortunately. Luca the guide was very friendly and tried to explain everything. I think that the experience is better if you understand Italian. But still very interesting, I hope that they quickly make an English translation! The location, building and original water system are in great shape and it gives a good idea how things were in the medieval era. Don't forget to wear long trousers or bring repellent!
Remember to call and reserve before going to the location, so a tour guide goes and takes you around the area. If you do not, you do not have any way to access the museum. It is a very interesting archaeological and historical museum. I highly recommend if you are in the city of Siena. Especially if you are a history/archaeology enthusiast!
